I get your point, nagdot...but I'm not sure it's true the Dead played more covers than originals esp. by a "2 to 1" margin.

If you go album by album you'll find the originals outweigh covers by quite a large margin.

The Dead certainly did a number of covers and virtually made them their own (GDTRFB, IKYR, Don't Ease, Death Don't, just to name a few), but I don;'t think it's accurate that they did more covers than originals.
